World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

yup, most of that crap started because of PVP... It is extremely difficult to make things different but equal.

vanilla was good

BC was awesome (probably the pinnacle) ( I remember spending a month and half learning how to properly gear and play my druid for tanking)

WotLK was still decent but the downward spiral had started, ALL classes using same gear,stats,cooldown dependent rotations, etc really started to show.

What the heck was next? I can't remember but it just generic, all thinking ceased. gear no longer mattered there was no thought needed, just can you watch which skill on cooldown you should hit next...

pfft doesn't matter

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

So if possible they made the game MORE nintendo like, removing any possibility of thought needed in gearing your character...

That answers my question about whether I'd ever want to go back :)

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor Launches Nov. 13th

crashumbc Re:Enough World of Warcraft already (146 comments)

Did they change the basic game play?

I was a big fan of the 2-3 expansions. But the game became WAY too nitendo based for me. Literally all the classes had the same gameplay, nothing but watching multiple "cooldowns"

Inside the Facebook Algorithm Most Users Don't Even Know Exists

crashumbc Re:About Facebook (130 comments)

Exactly !

What's worse is I think they've started dicking around with "most recent" also :(

ALL I want is POSTS to appear in chronological order and ALL of them to appear. If I haven't unfriended them or muted them...

THEN I WANT TO SEE THEIR POSTS....

FB can't even do that right...

Dorian Nakamoto Officially Denies That He Created Bitcoin

crashumbc Re:The original article (102 comments)

Just to play devils advocate...

Given his age, medical condition and his work history in government security fields.

He probably had no idea what the fuck a "bitcoin" was and thought it was something from his security past that he shouldn't be talking about...

Google Chairman on WhatsApp: $19 Bn For 50 People? Good For Them!

crashumbc Re:Economics of envy (303 comments)

Which is absolutely nothing in terms of economic impact and proves how worthless "trickle down" is.

Take that billion dollars, distribute it across "average" workers who then go buy boats. They can buy 20,000 boats! Do have any idea the number just jobs that creates? The number of things people buy for their new boats? (life jackets, mooring lines, etc)

The difference in economic impact is probably 1000 fold.

Google Chairman on WhatsApp: $19 Bn For 50 People? Good For Them!

crashumbc Re:Economics of envy (303 comments)

Build super yachts, and waste it on things that do VERY little to help the economy.

They buy a 1 billion yacht from a company that employs barely 50 people. Of course 49 of those people earn low wages and the owners of the super yacht company keep 99% of the profits.

So the "wealth" doesn't actually go anywhere or do anything it just gets pass around from one extremely rich person to another...

Ask Slashdot: Does Your Employer Perform HTTPS MITM Attacks On Employees?

crashumbc Re:Is there a way to route through cell phone? (572 comments)

Check out "PDAnet" for app that doesn't require to be "rooted". Or google "tethering" for your phone type.
(note: PDAnet requires the ability to install software on the PC)

Keep in mind most "unlimited" plans this is against the TOS.

And depending on your corporation may(probably does) violate their HR policies

Ask Slashdot: Best Options For Ongoing Education?

crashumbc Re:Your degree will suffice. (149 comments)

Pretty much anything requires a 4 year degree now. (yes, you can "get away" without one but you limit your options and make your life more difficult)

If your trying to jump into the programing field it depends what your current degree/job experaince are to the best approach.
